when they first came out matched sticks were more expensive, today they are not, since almost all computers use dual channel

dual channel is faster

matched sticks are a safer option, sometimes with shipping even cheaper

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I was looking at Newegg last night and it seems that two 1GB module are almost as cheap as two 512MB modules, there was an eight dollar difference between the two. The price for paired modules is lower, and the best way to go for dual channel.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
